  1. Have just watched the BBC program on the Irish Easter Uprising of 1916 as it is it's centennial celebration this year. I am shocked by the level of bias in this program against the Irish and Michael Portillo calling the event as a disaster for the Irish makes it seem like the British only ever did good in that country. Portillo seems to find it so strange that the Irish want to have control of their own country back.He pays no importance to the British Army executing any man they found during the uprising. He calls the uprising as a rebellion by "British subjects" against the King, which is treason. The General in charge tried to cover up the crime by imposing a total ban on the story of their extra-judicial murders of Irish people. Again it's another episode in the British trying to whitewash over the crime of their empire. I could see the parallels with the British and their rule of India. Only 3 years after this uprising came Jallianwala Bagh where again the British military shot dead anybody they could under the guise of "preventing a rebellion against the crown". In both cases the British military tried to blame the average citizen for being shot dead. The BBC is still as biased as ever towards the empire's crimes.
